In-Clinic Program for Autism

Our in-clinic program allows children to achieve their potential in a fun, social environment. In-clinic therapy might be for you if…

  • Your child has difficulty doing things that are easy for others
  • You want your child to learn in a social environment from qualified, caring staff
  • You want your child to access safe and developmentally appropriate learning experiences tailored to young children
  • You want your child to learn from experts in early childhood development and autism
  • You would benefit from a “one-stop shop” approach with coordinated services
  • Your lifestyle may not allow for a home-based therapy program

Enrollment Options

Narrow Focus


2 days per week
A narrow focus program allows us to put a microscope on 1-2 developmental areas. This program option is best suited for children who primarily need to develop social-communication skills, who may be supported by other programming, or where it would be helpful to focus on a smaller set of high priority skills at a given time.

Limited Focus


3 days per week (Monday/Wednesday/Friday)
A limited focus program allows us to address child needs across a smaller subset of key developmental domains. This program option is best suited for children who would benefit from support in 1-2 developmental areas in addition to social-communication skills.

Comprehensive Focus

Monday through Friday

5 days per week (Monday through Friday)
A comprehensive focus program allows us to teach a large variety of skills across many developmental domains. This program option is best suited for children who have developmental delays in a variety of areas beyond communication and social skill domains or more than one diagnosis.

Group-Based ESDM (G-ESDM)

Our group based ESDM program is a subset of our in-clinic program that occurs at a lower staffing ratio (2 staff to 3 children or 2 staff to 4 children) to better prepare children for learning in a classroom setting. All students in our in-clinic program are able to transition to a group ration once they have the prerequisites for learning in this environment.
